In 2008, Aaron Miles disbanded from his previous project "Burning Down Vegas" and went on to form another called "One More Riot". After becoming frustrated with the decline of the music scene in the local area, the band went into hiatus with other members finding other commitments. Aaron got together with his younger brother Ashley Miles to write some songs and eventually reformed as a 3 piece as "One More Riot" with the original drummer Mark Bilton. The band rehearsed and wrote music in late 2008, this line up eventually became "Military Arcade". 

"Military Arcade" began performing local shows around the Newbury area in 2011, winning a local battle of the bands they became determined to rise. However in 2012, Mark Bilton left the band on good terms due to other commitments, and the band got together with session drummer Thomas Hutchings who agreed to join the band full time. In October 2012 the band won the Exposure Music Awards "Best Live Act UK" which propelled them into high demand around the country, embarking them onto the "Viva La Revolution! Tour 2013". On this tour, the band ventured abroad to Belgium to perform another Exposure Music Awards showcase. In February 2013, the band released their debut album "Revolution Is Imminent" which became a success on it's launch selling hundreds of copies. One of the bands tracks "Superhero" was used in the Florida Independent Movie "I Am Super" directed by Brandon Agan. 

Later in 2013 "Military Arcade went into hiatus as Thomas left the band and an unfortunate management deal went the wrong way.

After a year of seperation, Military Arcade reformed with new drummer Daryl Molloy and Bassist Daniel Owen, developing a much thicker sound and returning in higher demand than ever. 2015 saw the band embark on a second UK Tour "Undead Revolutions Tour" after releasing the one off single "Freaks" produced by son of Stereophonics producer Pete Brand. This tour brought them their first appearance at the O2 Academy Islington, and also their first BBC Introducing performance, and the band were asked to return again in August. In October 2015, Miltiary Arcade will officially be under the management of Staged Management.

The band are currently recording their follow up tot heir debut album, entitled "Bon Voyage" to be released in the summer of 2016.
